San Pedro De Huatajata Group's story

The A.C. “San Pedro de Huatajata” will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana center. The group is made up of 12 people and is run by a Board with Gaby as the treasurer. The group has different types of businesses such as: buying animals, jerky sales, beer sales, fish sales, cattle sales, sweater sales and vegetables sales.

Gaby says that this is the first cycle that she will work with Pro Mujer and she joined the institution after having received an invitation from a “promotora” (a trained community worker). She currently has a business of selling vegetables that she has had for years and that she learned from her aunt.

She will use the loan to increase her working capital (buying vegetables) that she will purchase in La Ceja and later sell in the village market. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family since she is single.

When we asked her what she liked about Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the financing.

In this group: Marybel , Bertha , Vicenta , Dominga, Gaby Soledad , Wilma , Catalina, Arturo , Celestina , Mario , Herlindia , Romulo
